The 2024 Acura Integra S model is $7,100 more than the Civic R model

Reservations for the $51,995, 320-hp hot hatch will open May 11 and hit dealerships starting in June.

Acura has announced pricing for the new S-model of the Integra. It starts at $51,995, compared to the $44,890 starting price of the closely related Honda Civic Type R.

Reservations will open on May 11, allowing buyers to reserve one of the first 200 units. Predictably, and perhaps disappointingly, the new 2024 Acura Integra Type S will have a sizable price premium over its sibling, the Honda Civic Type R. The Acura hot hatch will start at

$51,995, or $7,105 more mechanically similar to the Civic. Both cars have a 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-4 engine, a six-speed manual transmission and a slight differential, but there are few differences between the two other than the exterior and interior.

In particular, Integra offers many additional standard equipment that define a different price point. It comes with heated front seats, a head-up display, an ELS 16-channel audio system and a power-adjustable driver’s seat, all of which are not offered on the Civic Type R.

The Integra S model is also offers less horse power, with its turbo four producing 320 horsepower compared to the Civic’s 315 horsepower. We don’t expect the Integra Type S to offer any stand-alone options other than the premium color. Most exterior color options cost $600

more on the standard Integra and on the TLX and MDX Type S models, so the Integra Type S should follow a similar pattern. Acura says the S model will be available in white, blue, red and the same Tiger Eye Pearl gold hue offered on the TLX and MDX, but that design should be available soon.

Acura will offer to reserve one of the first 200 Integra Type S models to arrive in the United States. Reservations will open at 1:00 p.m. Eastern time May 11 at, the car will begin arriving at dealerships in June.
